Hob Uid: 1546165
Location :
Medway
Hoo St. Werburgh
Grid Ref : TQ7538773422
Summary : A First World War redoubt or fieldwork is visible as earthworks on aerial photographs and has been mapped as part of the English Heritage: Hoo Peninsula Landscape Project. The site is a roughly oval earthwork mound with a sunken interior, enclosed by outer banks with additional linear outworks to the east. The mound is situated on Deangate Ridge roughly 285m west of the perimeter of Lodge Hill Ordnance Depot (Monument 1077634) and 270m north of the Chattenden Magazine enclosure (Monument 1481790). The feature was probably associated with military training in the area around Chattenden Barracks, and is one of several earthwork enclosures or redoubts noted on a War Department map of Lodge Hill field defences, 1914. An annotation dated September 1915 describes it as a redoubt. Other similar sites noted on the War Department map are Monuments 1546098, 1546125, 1546157, 1546168.
